    My sincere condolences to the family. Marge was my former boss at Motorola and then became my good friend. I live close to her home in Presque Isle and we met for lunch in Boulder Junction this summer. I will remember her quick wit and hearty laugh. Know that she loved her family deeply and loved talking about each one of you. I will miss my good friend.

    We loved Marge after getting to know her these past several years since she and Terry started attending Lakeland Church. She had a servant’s heart and concern for those she knew. Marge is now in heaven reunited with husband Terry and worshipping her savior Jesus in person. She was truly a Christ filled sister.

    Marge was part of a group of Rockford friends who enjoyed lots of good times together…Lots of skiing…parties…nights out for Friday Fish…Camping and kids. She was a beautiful person inside and out…She was the youngster (by a few months) in our group. I know she will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to the entire family.

    To Marge’s family,
    Our sincere sympathy on the loss of your mother. As former members of Faith Church we valued their friendship. Their devotion to God and their faithful walk through adversity is a testament of strength.

    Marge was a fine lady. demure and quiet yet strong in her convictions. She was an angel on this earth and now is with Jesus smiling forever.
